If you have problems in the extra-sporting field, you will be relegated from the most powerful squads in Europe. And even more so if the club that signed you had a lot of confidence in you to be one of the most important signings in recent times for the Premier League, and the investment would have to be recovered in some way so as not to lose money in a significant way.

And we know that Josep Guardiola, now a flamboyant UEFA Champions League winner with Manchester City and who has designed a team that has achieved the treble by beating Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, does not have much patience with players who do not want to be with his footballing idea, so one of the elements that have been on the bench for a long time is about to leave.

The Citizens don't want to lose any more money, and are even thinking of adding more players with the profile the Spanish manager wants. That, despite the fact that players like Ílkay Gündogan is already thinking about retirement in Saudi Arabia, which is starting to form a league with players of quite a high level and that with Cristiano Ronaldo in its ranks is attracting attention to make it more attractive.

For the time being, this midfielder has one foot out of the door. He had some spectacular seasons in France with AS Monaco, and his credentials to be in England were reliable. But his off-field problems and recent legal charges may soon be relegating him to oblivion, so they are already looking for his successor as soon as possible.

Who is the player Guardiola no longer wants at City?

The portal Mundo Deportivo released the information that Benjamin Mendy would be out of Manchester City for next season. The Frenchman played 75 official matches, where he only managed 2 goals and 14 assists, when he was given a six-year contract and a salary of more than 15 million euros. It is likely that he will have to clear up his situation as soon as possible in order to be signed by another club.
